Recently, students from Trinity Christian Academy’s (TCA) Tech Stop team, discussed the extensive curriculum of the TCA Honors Tech Intern class, as well as how the Tech Stop program helps students and teachers with their devices in the classroom at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) in San Antonio.
TCA’s Tech Stop program allows students to learn how to troubleshoot common technology issues and gain interpersonal and customer service skills. Students who work at the Tech Stop act as a resource to fix common technical problems with school-issued tablets throughout the year. If a student at TCA is having a problem with their tablet, they will take it to the Tech Stop, where upper school technology students will assess the problem, communicate the solution with their “customer” and resolve the issue.
The ISTE Conference & Expo is home to one of the largest and most interactive “ed tech” expos in the world. More than 15,000 educators attend this conference each year to learn about educator-tested strategies and resources for transforming learning and teaching.
The team who presented at the conference included Lisa Wong TCA director of technology, Charla Thomas TCA educational technology specialist, Tricia Westover TCA upper school tech stop support and students Alex Clemovitz, Laura Pomberg, Cailin Redden and Mary Ashley Samuelson.
